It is entirely reasonable that the same control measures (masks, distancing, et al) that are failing to control COVID-19 could be controlling influenza well. The devil is in the details.
The Westminster, Colorado Home Depot was a madhouse today, with too many people not wearing masks and no attempts to maintain social distancing. This is not acceptable.
My previous COVID-19 projections used Colorado COVID case data incorrectly, and the correction I made yesterday shows a rosier picture.
